Hindcast of Hurricane Sally impacts on barrier islands in the Gulf of Mexico

We performed XBeach and ADIRC+SWAN model simulations of Hurricane Sally over Dauphin and Petit Bois Islands off the Alabama-Mississippi coast to evaluate the morphologic response.

In addition, the XBeach model results of water levels, mean current speeds and signific
